yeah I wouldn't be surprised if they quoted you $5K+ for the whole thing, even conference rates aren't fantastic and they bring way more than 11 bookings

they will be sold out every weekend in the summer and they know it

What food options do they currently have in the food court under the poker room? Any particular ones great and are recommended?

Burgers and Fries is good if not exceptional. Cheesesteak place and Italian place are both decent, Asian and Mexican places are mediocre and overpriced. Everything there for comp dollars costs 2 comp dollars for 1 real dollar.

I agree 100%. I wanted a change of pace a few months ago, tried it, and thought it was the worst Chinese food I've ever had in my life.

Just go to Amphora, EZ game.

I've gotten the packaged sushi a few times. It's nothing notable, but it's not offensive, either. Does the job for a quick bite late at night without being a greasebomb or a full day's meal.

Will agree here, frickin fast food Panda Express was better (at least consistent in its slightly above average food)

I think the pizza place is decent, but you cant get a slice it is a med sized thin crust pizza which is still decent value for around $10 bucks.

Dont know why no one is giving the Casa Taco Express some love. Yes, we all miss the chicken & noodles from the Thai food stand it replaced, but the tacos are pretty good there along with the burrito bowl. They also do a good breakfest spread till 12pm at decent prices.

In a world of grease, I'm giving a "shout out" to the salad place (I think it's called "Lettuce Head"). It's tasty, healthy, & the portion size is huge!

This used to be called Lettuce Head.

Now, this is called CHOP & TOSS.

The basic is enough for web browsing. Streaming youtube videos will be noticeably slower. You can pay more to get faster service though.

Pretty sure that is one of the sites thats firewalled and you can not access through the Borgata's wi-fi.

(Dated info though - just remember having to go to wireless instead of wi-fi to watch final tables back in 2018 on site)

75 Tier Credits per Express Comp

1.5 ECs per hour at 1/2, 2 per hour at 2/5

So 112.5 TCs per hour at 1/2, 150 per hour at 2/5

25000 TCs for Pearl = 222 2/9 hours at 1/2, 166 2/3 hours at 2/5

Never had two free, always had 1, and still get it. If you use the comps, and don't meet the requirements for comps in general (including free rooms), you won't get them going forward. Just the way it works.
